Television viewers will be seeing more of Ken Jeong this year. Along with his new gig as a judge on The Masked Singer, Jeong will debut his first-ever Netflix special on Valentine’s Day, reports Vulture.
The Korean American doctor-turned-actor announced on Twitter – from his family dinner table – that he will reunite with Crazy Rich Asians’ Director Jon M. Chu for the special titled, “Ken Jeong: You Complete Me, Ho,” on February 14, 2019.
The title of Jeong’s comedy special is an ode to his wife, Tran Ho, who was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2008, and will reflect on his professional and personal life transitions.
According to TV Line, Jeong’s comedy special will be recorded at the Ice House Comedy Club in Pasadena, California, where Jeong began his career in comedy. The official logline of his comedy feature reads:
“You Complete Me, Ho reflects on how Jeong went from being a doctor to a comedy superstar and opens up about how his wife’s courageous battle with breast cancer led to him starring in one of the biggest comedy franchises of all time, The Hangover.”
Prior to Crazy Rich Asians, Jeong has also starred in ABC comedy’s Dr. Ken and the show Community.
